How to Protect Your Siding From Weather Damage
Siding serves as a protective layer for your home exterior, shielding it from harsh weather elements like rain, wind, hail, and heat. As a responsible homeowner, it is essential to protect your siding to maintain the appearance, value, and structural integrity of your home.
From the siding experts at Landmark Exteriors, here are five tips to protect your home’s siding from weather damage and keep it in tip-top shape:
Dirt buildup, insects, and other pollutants can accumulate and damage your home siding, leading to rot, mold, or discoloration. Regular cleaning with a mild detergent and a soft brush can help remove unwanted buildup and maintain the appearance of your siding.
Power washing is an effective way to remove stubborn debris, stains, and grime, but care must be taken as excessive pressure can damage or weaken the siding. We recommend seeking a professional residential roofing company like Landmark Exteriors, who will use the right combination of chemicals and water pressure to ensure a thorough clean without harming your siding.
Check for Gaps and Holes
Gaps and holes in your home siding can allow moisture and pests to enter and cause damage. Inspect your siding regularly to check for gaps or holes and fix them immediately.
Trim Overhanging Trees
Branches hanging over your home could cause scratches or damage to the siding during wind, snow or hail storms. Trimming overhanging trees keeps them away from your siding, reducing the risk of damage from trees or falling limbs.
Regular Maintenance and Repair
Regular inspections and maintenance by a professional roofing company can help detect issues like cracks or leaks in your siding before they turn into significant problems. Timely repair can help prevent additional damage and save money in the long run.
